Since we did not received any further objections to this CfC, this CfC passes.   

The Chairs and Team will now issue the W3C internal transition request and will schedule a meeting with the W3C Director to request his approval for this transition.

Subject: RE: CfC: Request transition of DOM4 to Proposed Recommendation

The CfC requesting transition of DOM4 to Proposed Recommendation was originally sent out on Jul 13:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Jul/0004.html


We now have a revised candidate Proposed Recommendation draft that takes into consideration all of the comments on the original CfC:
http://w3c.github.io/dom/PR-20150903.html


This note summarizes the comments on the original CfC and its associated candidate Proposed Recommendation draft and proposes a course of action.

Art's comment in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Jul/0005.html was handled by Bug https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=28943.


Shane's accessibility concerns in https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=28943#c1 were also dealt with.  See https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=28943#c7.


Philippe discovered minor problems in the usage of DOMError and with the document's Normative References in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Jul/0010.html.  These have been dealt with editorially in the revised candidate Proposed Recommendation draft.

Philippe also pointed out some references to definitions in the Editor's Draft of CSS Selectors 4 in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Jul/0010.html and this concern have been dealt with editorially as per https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-admin/2015Sep/0004.html  in the revised Candidate Proposed Recommendation draft.

Given that none of the above changes made normative changes to the original candidate Proposed Recommendation draft, the HTML WG co-chairs propose that we move forward with the DOM4 transition request using the revised candidate Proposed Recommendation draft identified above.  The WG Chairs plan to issue a WG Decision on the original CfC using the  revised candidate Proposed Recommendation draft on Tuesday Sep 22.

Silence will be taken to mean there is no objection, but positive responses are encouraged.  If there are no objections by Tuesday Sep 22, this resolution will carry.

So, given that we know we won't get the Selectors Level 4 update in time, and I believe the Director won't settle for links to an editors, my current thinking to unblock the DOM spec and is to copy the *very
general* definitions in an appendix of the DOM spec:
   http://w3c.github.io/dom/PR-20150903.html#css-concepts


Using the Selectors Level 4, I figure I keep the concepts as general as possible and make it clear that the Level 4 draft is the spec to look at. If the Level 4 draft gets up-to-dated by the time we go to REC, we could remove the appendix.

It's less than ideal for sure but, since the clock is against us, I don't have a better solution unfortunately.
